Hi Betsy. I think I'm your cousin, Mike Tiemann. Your mom Benita and my dad Cordes were cousins, I believe, as my Grandpa Tiemann (Milton) and yours Jesse (I think Jesse was his name) were brothers.When I was 10 or so I met your Grandpa when my Dad and I went dove hunting on his place. Your right about your Mom...she was a wealth of information. My sister Barbara has drawn up a family tree that includes at least some of what Benita told her. My Aunt Annie Louise used to know a lot but she has lost a lot of her memories/acuracy of rememberance.
